Norman Mailer Tuesday

Norman Mailer quote


I decided to take a  break from everything that was going on today, as you can tell.    Everyone has days when they are doing a million things at once, but it never seems like anything gets accomplished, or maybe it does if you are a super human.   We all are.  I think you get the point.  I am one who wants to do everything I can, but sometimes I take on too much and wonder why I do that because it ends up overwhelming me mentally and physically.  We only have two hands, but at times would like more.

Anyway, enough of my psycho babble!

Let’s get to the point.  I sat back in my chair and looked around the room.  Out of the corner of my left eye, I saw the quote that I have taped to the wall.

“I don’t think life is absurd.  I think we are all here for a huge purpose.  I think we shrink from the immensity of the purpose we are here for.”  ~Norman Mailer

That quote for whatever reason was calling me to pay attention.

We all have a purpose in life and need to slow down and enjoy the life that we have, while we have it.  That is difficult sometimes, especially when we love what we do!
